Start with the online practice tests and discover your weak spot s. I started with a whole online test including all five papers. I would practice a bit more on my weak spots than on the rest. I had most of them wrong on that first test.
I would also have to do many Gapped sentences exercises Paper 3 as well. As I have said several times before, I always have problems with listening, and this time it was no exception.
In my case, I practiced with my mom. Now that you know in what areas you need to work harder, practice. Do online exercises; half an hour per day per weak spot was good enough for me.
I also listened to the BBC Radio everyday to get used to the British accent and to try to understand as much as possible. Keep familiarizing yourself with the format, and also with the topics used for the several texts that will be included in the test.
There can be newspaper articles, book reviews, extracts from novels, articles about music, sports, celebrities, nature… you name it. You should have a wide vocabulary to be prepared to easily read and understand all those texts.
If you have the textbook, take all five practice tests a week before the exam. This helped me A LOT. I borrowed the CAE preparation book and took one whole test per day.
I forgot to say, another advantage of taking the practice tests is that you can know how long you take to complete each paper. Do the easy ones first, then leave the difficult ones for the very end.
I took almost the exact time 1hr 15min for reading, even though it was very easy for me, because the Gapped text part turned out to be pretty hard sometimes. The same happened with the Multiple matching, but much less frequently.
I was fine with the time for Writing and Use of English. It might seem like a silly tip, but oh, I know that from experience. The reviews may be chosen more than once. Book Corner A round-up of the latest fiction and non-fiction from Beth Young.
A Reading a new novelist is a bit like asking a stranger out on a date. You never quite know if this is the start of a beautiful relationship. You check the blurbs, the publicity photograph, and flick through the book to look for the two essentials: entertainment and substance.
Beginner's Greek by James Collins is certainly big on the latter, weighing in at plus pages.
And the quotes on the back cover have the effect of a bunch of friends saying to you, 'Go on, you'll get on brilliantly'. Early indications are that this blind date could lead to a deeper relationship. Beginner's Greek is described by The New York Times as a "great big sunny lemon chiffon pie of a novel" about romantic love amongst the American middle classes. It is indeed delicious.
B In Manil Suri's second outing The Age of Shiva we have a broad-sweeping, epic novel with an unforgettable heroine so wilful yet flawed that it calls to mind that other famous leading lady, Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind. The story begins at a firework party in Delhi where Meera falls disastrously in love.
We follow her journey to Bombay, marriage and obsessive motherhood, with occasional flashbacks to a childhood that was marred by political turmoil. Mathematics professor, Suri, captures the fluidity of the role of women with a beautiful kind of precision. It may seem churlish to question the minutia of incidents that abound in this comprehensive tome, but whilst Nadel is clearly striving for accuracy one feels there ought to have been more sifting, more mining for the gold amongst the biographical trivia.
In addition, Nadel's tone is somewhat dry and academic and seems at odds with the brilliance of David Mamet's own writing.
